Guillermo Del Toro Provides An Update For JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK

After getting beaten down in development hell on The Hobbit and At the Mountains of Madness, Guillermo Del Toro shows no signs of slowing down. He landed an international success with Pacific Rim, his next film Crimson Peak looks incredible, he’s working on the second season of The Strain, and he might make Pacific Rim 2 his follow-up to Crimson Peak.

Another project Del Toro might pursue is an adaptation of Justice League Dark, the DC Comics superhero team that features misfits, outcasts, and oddballs like John Constantine, Deadman, Zatanna, and Madame Xanadu. When we last heard from Del Toro about the project in November 2013, he said that he was waiting for a writer to handle the screenplay and the ball was in Warner Bros. court about how they wanted to work the film into their larger universe. The following year, Warner Bros. announced their big DC Comics lineup, and it didn’t include Justice League Dark.

Del Toro was recently asked about the current status of Justice League Dark while on the set of The Strain, and it appears there’s been some progress, although certainly not as much as fans would probably like to see:

“We turned in our [script] revision, and it all depends on the calendar, you know? If I can do it, I would love to do it. And I think the screenplay and the characters are very solid.”

The director acknowledged that if the studio moves forward on Justice League Dark, it might be without him, adding, “[Justice League Dark] needs to fall into the plan of the DC Universe.”
